It was 1971 when I started to chase steam engines. I was just a mid-school student living in Tennoji, Osaka. I managed to obtain a second-hand 35mm camera Taron-35. Saving my pocket money, I made small train trips to see steam engines, mainly near Osaka. C57 in Kyoto, D51 in Nara, two ancient Japanese capitals, were still operational.
